Carnation Chabaud Mix Seeds - Dianthus Caryophyllus - B357

Carnations remain the most popular cut flower, and many people want to know how to grow carnation flowers.
Proper care of carnations begins before you even plant your seeds. Growing carnations will be much easier if you plant the seeds in an area that gets a minimum of four to five hours of sun each day. Well-draining soil without mulch, for good air circulation, will help you grow thriving carnation garden plants.
Begin planting carnation seeds outdoors by sowing them in 1/8-inch deep soil that will drain well. Keep the soil in your garden, or container, moist until the seedlings are growing. Once your seedlings are thriving, thin them so the small plants are 14 inches apart.
Choose a container with drainage holes in it, filling the container within an inch or two from the top with potting soil. Sprinkle the seeds across the top of the soil and cover them lightly.
